Just tried this rub and smoked with pecan. Best brisket I ever made. Neighbors thought so too. Didn't have the chipotle so skipped it. Look forward to making another brisket and including the chipotle.

I really loved this, thanks for posting! I used the smoked paprika, and omitted the cayenne, as I am not fond of a lot of heat. Actually, I didn't use it on brisket, but on a New York stip steak. Wrapped it in cling wrap and refrigerated overnight. Yum! Made for Fall PAC 2012

WOWZERS! Great rub!! I did a brisket point and made burnt ends using this rub. Very, Very good!!! Smoked it over night with some mesquite & oak. This will be used again! Thanks for sharing!

Just tried this for the first time and applied to beef back ribs. Great flavor. Can't wait to use it on a brisket. Thanks for sharing.

A good Texas Flavor. Next time I may cut back only slightly on the cayenne pepper. Neighbors loved it. Thanks

I've been smoking brisket for years (i'm a texan) and have been experimenting with different rubs. I tried this a week ago and was very impressed. Thank you! <br/><br/>I'll be sticking with this recipe for a while. Just don't layer it too thick in spots - should be a nice thin and even rub...else the paprika can come out a bit too strong. <br/><br/>Awesome work!

We loved this! I don't have access to chipotle powder so had to use regular chilli powder but did use smoked paprika and ground up some dried onions as I also cannot buy onion powder. I cooked it for 7 hours on 150C in a smoker bag and it was wonderful; DH couldn't get enough of it!
